Hillary Clinton on Republican Health Care Bill Failure: 'Today Was a Victory'

Former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called the House Republicans' failure to repeal and replace Obamacare Friday a victory for the millions people she said would have become uninsured if the bill had passed.

"Today was a victory for the 24, 000, 000, people at risk of losing their health insurance, for senior, for families battling the quiet epidemic of addiction, for new moms and women everywhere," she wrote in a statement posted on Twitter. "Most of all it's a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right."

Donald Trump asked Speaker Paul Ryan to pull the Healthcare Bill after Ryan informed him they did not have enough support to pass it.
